Team Sauber Petronas drivers Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen will start tomorrow's United States Grand Prix in 13th and 15th places respectively after the second qualifying session.

Nick Heidfeld:

"I'm happier with my lap today than I was with yesterday's in comparable conditions. The car felt better balanced. Unfortunately the tyres had begun to grain before the end of my lap, otherwise I could have finished in front of Villeneuve."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"I must confess that this was not one of my best laps. I lost my line a bit in Turn Six and went slightly off track. It was quite slippery, and the incident naturally cost me some time. We are nevertheless within our target, but it is still annoying, of course. We changed the car quite a bit for qualifying, and it is set up well for the race."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"Nick is right beside Villeneuve and close behind Button on the grid, and Heinz-Harald is within striking distance of all three, so this bodes well for an exciting start."

1:13.083s, 13th
